All About Our Waterproof Jewelry

At erin gray, we believe in designing classic and timeless styles that become your go-tos for daily wear. Crafted with a “lived-in” mindset, our jewelry is made for everyday life. When you’re getting dressed on your most casual days or special occasions, you’ll find yourself reaching for our waterproof jewelry. These styles are 14K gold-filled meaning they won’t tarnish after repeated wear. Fall in love with these pieces and add them to your daily rotation knowing they will last through thick and thin.

Durable, Waterproof, and Affordable Jewelry

We love casual, fun and easy-going style which means we believe your jewelry shouldn’t cause you to break the bank but also shouldn’t need to be replaced frequently. Our waterproof 14K gold filled collection is full of classic, yet edgy styles that you can wear while you swim, sweat, sleep and everything in between. Our waterproof line is designed in our Atlanta studio and almost all of our 14K gold filled materials are made in America. Because we use 14K gold-filled beads, chains and other elements in this collection, you’ll find styles that last and make you look good and feel good for years to come.  

The erin gray waterproof 14K gold-filled bracelets, necklaces and earrings are safe for all day wear - whether you’re at the beach, pool, working out, or jumping in the shower, your erin gray jewelry will not be harmed! Pack this collection and wear it while you travel since every piece is perfect for layering and wearing together.

14K Gold-Filled vs. Gold-Plated

In short, there is a lot more gold in 14K gold-filled jewelry than there is in 14K gold plated pieces. 14 karat gold-filled is composed of a solid layer of gold - which must constitute at least 5% of the item’s total weight - mechanically bonded to sterling silver or another base metal. You can always be certain that 14K gold-filled jewelry is nickel free. 14K gold-filled has the same appearance as 14K gold, but at a much lower cost. Even with daily wear, 14K gold-filled items can last years, because they are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, which will tarnish pretty quickly. 


What makes 14K gold-plated different from gold-filled? The layer of gold on a plated piece is not nearly as long lasting, because water and sweat cause this thin layer to not only tarnish, but scratch and wear off. With high-levels of attention and care, gold-plated jewelry may survive for 2 years but will eventually need to be re-plated. This makes gold-plated an option for trendy pieces that you only want to wear a handful of times.
